A foundation for Aruban Artists, TAG 168, organized Art Exhibition “JAZZ” at the Cas di Cultura during the Caribbean Sea Jazz Festival 2010. The artists featured included Arantxa Tromp, Belinda de Veer, Edmond Tujeehut, Eduardo Valbuena, Eefje van der Straten, Elvis Tromp, Frank Croes, Gerda van Leeuwen, Glenda Heylinger, Grace Ashruf, Hugo Palmar, Joost Horward, Joseph Miklojcik, Lorenzo Gould, Lucia Ras, Mavalda Tromp, Michiko Takatsu, Miriam del l’lsle Mo Mohamed, Moritz Ebinger, Nelson Gonzales, Omaira Silva, Reginald de Palm, Rudolf Dijkhoff, Ryan Oduber, Sherry Douglas, Telka van Dodewaard, Timothy Charles, and a few of the art students of Moritz Ebinger.
This was the 4th “CSJF” Art Exhibition. This year they implemented their first “PUBLIC CHOICE AWARD” for the participating artists, asking visitors to the exhibit to vote for their favorite among the 45 pieces. With 830 votes cast by visitors during the Caribbean Sea Jazz Festival, Oct 8 – 9, the winner was an emerging new young local artist, Reginald de Palm, a student of the well known local artist, Timothy Charles.
There was also an extra treat: Once again, this year, artists got together to create a new cooperative painting – CSJF 2010 on the spot, and visitors enjoyed seeing their creativity.
It will be raffled at the next year’s Caribbean Sea Jazz Festival 2011 !
